Washing Machines on the Fantasy

Can anybody tell me if the washing machines on the Fantasy use regular detergent or high efficiency (HE) detergent? Thanks!

Definitely regular detergent. You can bring your own or they sell some in the laundry room.

These answers are strange to me. Last summer on the Fantasy I was doing laundry and a woman had used regular detergent in the HE machine. There were suds EVERYWHERE and she couldn't get her clothes rinsed for anything.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

I use the detergent "pods" for travel now that the sheets are no more. I put them in a baggie inside a small ziploc container = no mess! I also bring my own dryer sheets, but most importantly, a stain removal pen/gel (also packed the same way).

I've only ever used regular detergent.
